Wvu Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, is seeking help from the public in identifying and treating the common pinworm disease known as red patchy nose.
The problem, which affects more than 300,000 people in the United States, has spread to other states and is now impacting many hospitals, said Wvu spokeswoman Susan Williams.
Wvu’s pin worm disease was discovered in a patient’s arm in late 2014, when the patient had the disease before her diagnosis.
“Wvu has been extremely proactive in addressing this problem,” Williams said.
In January, Wvu announced a new program for the pinworm program.
Wvu will begin a program for a limited number of patients, including those with red patches in the face.
According to the program, the program will begin with the diagnosis and treatment of the red patch disease and include additional testing and supportive care to ensure patient safety and well-being.
Wuvys program will be administered by Wvu’s Pinworm Center.
Williams said it is hoped the program could lead to an increase in the number of people being tested for the disease.
“There is no cure for the red patches, but we believe that by providing additional support to the people in need of care, they will benefit from the testing,” she said.
“We know from studies that this is a condition that is not caused by a parasite.”
Williams said the program is aimed at improving patient care, and that Wvu has not identified any potential risks.
“Wuvu Medical Center does not have a history of having any known outbreaks, so it is not an outbreak response plan,” she added.
“However, we do have the capacity to respond in an emergency situation if necessary.”
